From the event organizer:
“The Canopy Startup Sessions are held once per month and feature up to six tech and life sciences focused startup companies. The focus of the event is to help early stage founders validate and iterate their ideas. (Investors also view the event as a great forum to scout for early stage ideas.)
Each company demonstrates their idea, business model or prototype and looks to the audience for feedback.
After the demonstration, audience members are encouraged to ask questions, give feedback and support the founder in their journey.”
